    That's a beautiful piece of wood.

    Doubly surprising because most maple Squier necks are two piece -- the fingerboard being separate from the neck itself, and on this one the grain is so well matched that it look like it is a single piece.

    Maple fretboard. An excellent start. Playing the odds, I'll wager that the body is red?

    Got no problem with HBs, but that guitar needs real Teles on it..Just my own personal opinion..
    I had a 69 Thinline and loved the sound..

    Why do you say it's a cap neck? I looked at it on sweetwater and it has a skunk stripe which is not usually the case with cap necks. Plus if u look at the pick of the head at full magnification it appears to had uninterrupted grain lines from the head right up to the nut.

    In fact I didn't say it "was," but that such is the common thing on Squiers, even in my experience some of the better ones.

    But in fact, and to my own surprise, even one of my own -- The VM Cabronita -- which I "assumed" was a two piece, was found not to be. So I stand corrected.

    (What's that old proverb about "never assume"? -It'll make an "ass" out of u and me.")

    BTW, a skunk strip itself is not a reliable determiner. Some think it to be simply for the cost savings of consistency, others say it is for its 'cool' factor, but more than a few two piece necks -- even some with rosewood boards -- have skunk stripes.

    Here are two examples of such.

    In any case that is one beautiful neck!

    When do you get it? (pant pant)

    I've seem RW board necks with a stripe but never seem a maple board cap neck with it. Not saying there isn't, obviously there is if u have had them but It's not real common from what i have seen. On a side note, i have had 2 maple cap necks and they were 2 of the best sounding maple board necks i have had. Still sounded the same as a all maple neck but just like great sounding examples of them. Maybe just coincidence, i dunno.

    ugh - it was "on vehicle for delivery" all day yesterday - fed-ex status remains that way as of today ... I fear that my MIA guitar is going to be sitting in a cold truck until Monday (or Tuesday? do they deliver on Vets Day?) :(

    I've never seen the neck or fingerboard material as being a major part of an instrument's sound. Feel and playability, yes. But not sound.

    As an old Gibson guy I always assumed that bolt-ons had to greatly affect the sound. But now owning a couple of bolt on Epis I question even that. And my Gibson Les Paul CM has a set neck made out of maple, not the expected mahogany.

    Far more important is the body's finish!!! :D
